rail between new york and boston. wouldn't that be great development. >> eliot: what is also critical in addition to adding as a second avenue, high speed rail to boston is maintaining the infrastructure. one of the things that we learned in the last 48 hours is how vulnerable we are to the sort of flood such a this, which we never thought would happen, but it did. this is where federal dollars need to be focused as well. >> absolutely. they're beginning with the generators and the army corp of engineers is down taking care of it with personnel. i just did a delegation letter trying to get more emergency funds for transportation. because they're on a slim budget as you know from your days in albany. they don't have the money to do the backup from this needed repair that we need right now. we need more federal dollars going to transportation, and all these areas and you were talking about bellevue. i toured nyu medical today. he was in the hospital with pneumonia, and that hospital is in devastation. all their major equipment was in the basement. it's all been destroyed. the stench is

, florida. there's boston, massachusetts. there's the san francisco bay area. there is seattle, up in washington state. there's san diego. there's tampa, florida in the st. petersburg area. there's baltimore, maryland. there's the virginia beach area, that metro area including norfolk. there is jacksonville, florida. and, of course, there is new orleans. so pop quiz. what do all of these large american cities have in common? you can cheat by looking at this map. what do all of these large american population centers have in common? the answer is that all of these major american cities are right on the edge of america. right on the coastal edge, up next to the sea. now, you could also add even some more major cities to this list if you wanted to. places like philadelphia or washington, d.c. or houston or providence, rhode island. those are all sort of coastal cities, too, in the sense that they are near the coast and they're on waterways. just for the sake of argument, let's not even include those. let's just be narrowly focused here, talking narrowly about big populous metropolitan

of wrestling outloud with making these choices. knowing what we know does philadelphia, does boston, does new york have to use a changed municipal math to run its daily affairs because of threats of these kinds of things? joe romm? >> well, i think as governor cuomo said, it's a new normal but we have old infrastructure. i think if f you listen to client scientists -- if we had listened to climate scientists who worned, no could flood like this, that storm surges were going to increase as the sea levels rose because ofgob waming and because of more intense storms we might have prevented it. now i think we need to listen to climate scientists who are warning that sea levels could rise, two feet-- as you heard-- by the middle of the century but three, four, five and six feet by the end of the century. so our choices are twofold. we should reduce greenhouse gas emissions so we're on the low end of future warming estimates and secondly we've got to start preparing for the storms that we are stuck with, like hurricane sandy. >> suarez: he used the word "prudence. whats prudent at ts point? >> that

boston at the time when this frankenstorm came along and thought, wow, are we leaving. but we left, and the captain said we were going to head for bermuda. and we thought, wow. anyway, off we went. and very quickly, we were into major seas. and we did head for bermuda. we ended up going on a northern track to bermuda. we were not able to get in there which was very distressing for us. >> we're seeing a picture of you and graham, my stepdad. >> oh. >> and i know you guys are quite -- your sea farers. you do a lot of this. a lot of people who are on board might not have been so experienced. so how is everybody in terms of seasickness? because even in a boat that big, even in a ship that big, 35-foot seas can make people -- even hardy sea-farers sick. how were the passengers? >> well, i think a lot of them stayed in their rooms for major parts of it. everybody had to be extremely careful. i mean, doors were swinging on the ship, and -- but they do -- i do want to say, our captain really was very concerned about our safety, and did everything he could. it's just that when you're out th

27 minutes at 11:30. we'll start with the markets. art hogan joins us from boston. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> is this what you expected? china pmi decent. not sure if people expected 1% out of that. >> it's interesting. we've seen an improvement over the last month or so in the economic ad calendar across the board. while that's happening, we're seeing real sloppy earnings season. the contradictions here are loud and clear. what i think we're seeing, the fact we went from june to september. since then, we're getting back about 4% on the s&p, about 6.2% on the nasdaq. we've had a bit of a correction into this earnings season and didn't expect better than expected numbers out of china for sure, but the consistency out of the improvement was catching everybody by surprise and probably portends something for tomorrow's job numbers. >> given the fact that not every trading desk is fully staffed, who know what is d order flow is like given what's normal. that niese numbers at the dow, even the s&p's may not be accurate, relative to sentiment? >> it's interesting that you

goes home to boston to vote. the president's going to be there. this could be the difference in the electoral college. if you look at iowa and wisconsin, two other numbers you just threw out there. iowa and wisconsin very important part of the president's firewall in the midwest. for example, should he lose florida, iowa and wisconsin very important. same thing with ohio. both of them -- both those states important to both of these candidates. and of course wisconsin -- in wisconsin that may be one of the reasons paul ryan was chosen because the romney campaign knows how important that state could be to them as insurance, if you will, that they could get to 270. >> the president went there earlier today. >> exactly. >> a significant where they are underscores all important -- you're looking at all of these ads they're doing all the speeches, the rallies, the messages, they're putting out final arguments as they say. is there any one thing that you think could tip the balance? >> of course. turnout, voter enthusiasm, intensity. that's what all of these rallies are about. the p
